My travel style and overall lifestyle fall around the saying, “less is more.”
I believe that a minimalistic view in life has given me the self-satisfaction and the ease to travel only with the necessary things I need both in life and as a traveling woman. I realized that carrying less stuff with me lightens not only the load of my pack but also my inner conscious is free from worry. I am contented and confident because I know that I have everything I need with me, nothing more, nothing less.
That said, my style may not be the same as yours, but it doesn’t mean you can’t pick up a thing or two ideas in this post. My list is very basic. Thus you’ll have an overall idea what you might need on the road! Just remember that if you’re backpacking, it is vital you think through what you put in your pack. The hardest thing I did before was to throw away or pay for shipping to send off some of the stuff I didn’t end up using. Therefore, always think through if you need that cute jumper or not.
On a crazy note, I once traveled around Europe and Asia for three months with a 35L backpack! I covered two seasons (winter and extreme heat), and I had everything I needed in that backpack including a sleeping bag, a DSLR, and a cute pair of dresses. Looking back, that was extreme minimalism, and I would certainly do it again.
